Overlapping ways

Posted by ablansinger on 22 January 2009 in English (English)

I am currently Using the old Wayscheck scripts from Gary68 to find and fix problems with crossing roads, loose end and such in Denmark (Fyn and Jylland).

I have resolved quite som problems but now I have a problem that I dont know how to fix, so some assistance is welcome.

There is a East/West going highway in Jutland named "Esbjergmotorvejen" and it seems that there are several overlapping instances of this road, I have tried to delete some of these but not succeded.

The involved overlapping ways (according to JOSM validator) are:

3 ways: Esbjergmotorvejen
164 points 25612631
43 points 4596756
66 points 4596751

2 ways: Esbjergmotorvejen
164 points 25612631
66 points 4596752

3 ways: Esbjergmotorvejen
166 points 4048475
46 points 4596755
99 points 4596744

2 ways: Esbjergmotorvejen
166 points 4048475
99 points 4596744

I think it should be possible to load all the needed roads into JOSM with this link

Those objekts are members of relations, i guess.
In JOSM there should be a warning massage if you try to delete such a object.

Yes you are right they are all part of a relation (the same relation in each of the four groups).

Some days ago I removed some of the roads and thought I succeeded, but yesterday I realised that they were still there.

When I tried to remove them yesterday, JOSM showed a warning about them being part of a relation and I accpeted that they be removed from the relation.
Everything seemed OK in JOSM, but when trying to upload I got a warning about a problem and it would retry in 5 seconds, and after 5 seconds the warning disapeare.
I then tried to upload again and it listed one less change to upload but same error afterwards, and after a couple of uploads every thing seemd to be uploaded.

AFter a restart of JOSM and download of the area again, all the ways were there again, so what to do ?

Maybe the server was just busy so I will try again one day.

Just tried to delete way 4596756 with JOSM
It fails when trying upload, with amessage about en error 412 and trying again in 5 seconds.
Then I tried to simply remove the way from the relation and then upload it, same error so it seems to be related to the Relation 21359.

It seems like this route is quite bigg could this be the problem ? How do I get around that ?

I think I will try with potlach
